Experimentation, Curiosity, and Forgetting

Experimentation, Curiosity, and Forgetting <p>Abstract:</p><p>I examine how curiosity is grounded in Nietzsche&apos;s critique of customary morality. I argue that Nietzsche&apos;s positive account of active forgetting is compatible with his treatment of curiosity as a key virtue, and that it can be shown to actively support curiosity. To support the latter claim, I suggest that Nietzschean memorial courtesy can be defined as the application of <i>politeness about memory</i> toward ourselves, toward others, or with regard to specific matters of inquiry.</p> http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Journal of Nietzsche Studies Penn State University Press
